Everyone is Talented, Not All Have the Opportunity
Education is the foundation of a successful society, by starting with the people. Education empowers people to follow their dreams and become the best that they can be throughout their experience. Education provides confidence, growth, and the ability to open minds through learning.
Some students have support to reach their dreams at an easier rate, while others may not have the support system in place. To ensure that all students succeed in education, it is important to provide opportunities starting at a young age. We need to support our youth in programs that help with access, graduation, and overall learning. It is what makes the world a better place!
What is CY Reads?
CY Reads is an initiative to meaningfully engage students during the pandemic when they are really struggling with disengagement. City Year New Hampshire will bring together enriching content through selected books, diverse readers and exciting presentations, and multi-lingual recordings to help promote student engagement. The CY Reads experience creates a space where students can connect and find belonging alongside their peers, hear and read stories representative of their backgrounds, and grow in literacy skills. This virtual library of read-aloud videos for grades 3 to 6 will be used in extended learning time to enhance student connection to learning. The read-aloud videos will be facilitated by City Year AmeriCorps members who already have existing relationships and have been supporting student engagement and learning since the beginning of the school year.
